west virginia, south dakota. that makes it a lot tougher. president obama around 46% nationally. in those states, he's in the 30s, barely in the 40s. that makes him a lot tougher. >> the reason that's so important, of course, in the midterm elections, republicans only they'd to take over six of those senate seats to get the majority also in the senate. they already have it in the house, which would really make president obama a lame duck president. correct? >> right. that's the big fear in the white house. that's why you have a bunch of democratic senators going to the white house saying, look, you've got to help us. that may mean staying away. that's why you'll probably see more of president clinton out on the campaign trail, president obama in a lot of states. yes, if the democrats lose the senate and six seats, that's what it's going to take this year, you know, he's going to be out of luck for a second term agenda.
